World’s Largest Professional Services Network, Deloitte, Teams with 3D Systems: Introduces 3D printing ‘Discovery Center’
Deloitte, a company that is considered to be a leader in manufacturing consulting services all around the world, has teamed with 3D Printing company 3D Systems to launch a joint ‘Discovery Center’, which is located Rosslyn, Va. Deloitte is known as the world’s largest professional services network in the world. They generated an astounding $32.41 billion in revenue last year alone.
The purpose of the ‘Discover Center’ is to demonstrate, educate, and inspire their clients, as they begin to use emerging design and 3D Printing technologies to bring products and services to market. They hope to show businesses the benefits of using both consumer level and larger industrial level 3D printers to cut costs, increase production, and save time in the all important prototyping phase.
3D System’s CEO, Avi Reichental said,
“With our complete portfolio of 3D content-to-print technologies and Deloitte’s expertise in manufacturing, supply chain, innovation strategy, and business transformation, we were able to develop a truly remarkable experience for clients looking to transform their businesses with additive manufacturing.”
Most large manufacturing businesses have probably heard of 3D Printing (Additive Manufacturing) by now. They are probably fascinated by what it can be used to do, but at the same time, they probably share a lot of hesitation around the technology. The Deloitte ‘Discovery Center” has been created to help bring more clarity to executives of these larger companies. The ‘Discovery Center’ is designed to allow companies to experiment with 3D printing, before they decide if it is right for them.
Marcus Shingles, Principal, Deloitte Consulting Innovation, has this to say:
“We believe clients looking towards advanced design and Additive Manufacturing require a truly immersive experience in order to fully understand the implications to their business. Through this Experience Center, clients can experience the end to end process before they commit to further investments.”
Deloitte and 3D Systems have developed learning modules that cover more than 20 facets of advanced design and 3D printing. They will create custom programs for each company individually.
